South Asian chest--does anyone know what this is?

Recommended Posts

Guest Marijn Verhoeven

We would like your help to identify and perhaps estimate the value of our south Asian chest. If you are interested in buying the chest, we are interested in selling.

 

We bought this wooden chest in Bangladesh when we were stationed there in the mid-2000s. At the time we understood that this was an antique chest used by migrant workers to both store their belongings (there is quite an effective locking mechanism that is shown in the pictures) and to sleep on. It seems a bit heavy to travel around with, but that was the story.

 

Does anyone know what this is? Or would you have advice on how to find out? Many thanks,

 

Marijn and Karen

Do you know when the chest was made? It looks pretty old, and I'll bet the older it is the more it's worth.
